    I doubt you will see many "no" here. :)

    Go for It, It is the best sim (for me, of course). Dont expect to have the last dx11 effects, but We can all live without this and have a real driving experience

    If you prefer your racing on the "sim" side it's a no-brainer, and it looks like you do based on Race 07 and GTR2 and for the fact you use a wheel - may be the best value racer you can buy.
    Note, when I "first" tried the demo I was not that impressed as the graphics looked so dated BUT after some tweaking it looks more than adequate (miles ahead of Race 07/GTR 2) and the rest of the game quickly shines given a little time (FFB, AI, content, physics, sound, ...). It's not my only racing sim as I enjoy them all but it's definitely in the rotation.

    Edit: Pro, see above, Cons.........still thinking.............still thinking...........not photo-realistic ;)

    Of course it is. And there is a 1 hour demo (not the latest version) on their website you can try out to make your own mind up. It's a no-brainer though. Buy it.

    if you want auto updates, from steam. But it will not allow you to use some tools, not compatible with GSC for the moment

    By "tools" Patrick means mostly a few interface mods, I believe? Steam is more hassle-free these days. But regarding content mods (cars, tracks, etc.), both versions are similar.

    I would go with the Steam version, haven't touched my stand-alone install seem they offered the Steam version. All of the track and car mods I've tried have worked fine.

    I honestly regret buying pCARS, sometimes rF2 and had some doubts after buying Assetto Corsa.
    Yet I have never ever in my life had to deal with ANY doubts or regrets for GSCE and Formula Truck.

    Ftruck is the best game I have bought in recent years. If you can master those 5000kg beasts you can master any car :)

    Lets put it this way. If it has a "Reiza" tag, you can expect a good top-notch product with plenty of content for a good price. Win, win, win.

    It's very sim style :) So much so that if you try to drive the trucks like you would drive a car, it's not going to end well at all. You don't know what "understeer" means until you try to drive one of those trucks, trust me. My usual procedure is:

    - approach a corner;
    - light a candle to whatever god I happen to favor at the moment;
    - start praying;
    - turn the steering wheel;
    - watch the truck go straight;
    - turn harder;
    - watch the truck go straight;
    - pray really hard;
    - sometimes the truck turns;
    - grin a big grin.

    I might be exaggerating just a little, but really, the game is tremendous fun. You won't regret it. Plus you can buy the Reiza bundle on Steam, and get FTrucks and Stock Car Extreme together with a significant discount.
